It is time for the school year to begin again! I am excited to have you or your student in my seventh or eighth grade English classroom this year. I hope that your summer was both relaxing and thought-provoking. This will be an area for parents to see the wonderful things that we have been contributing in during our class time. I will use this space to showcase student work: projects, collaborative activties, or anything else that was done exceptionally well that the student gave me permission to share; upcoming events: field trips, a repeat of important school events, activities that could incoporate parent or guardian involvement; other important information or reminders. I hope to have a school year full of parent-teacher cooperation and communication to best help our students to learn in an engaging and welcoming enviroment. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments.
